Successful bidders living outside the UK will be asked to pay for their lots before despatch.

No bid will be accepted below the reserve. Take into account that some of our estimated prices appear rather too modest, and may be well overbid.

Note that some of the material on offer in this sale has been removed with insufficient care from books, so watch out for tears, scuffs, thinned patches etc FOR THOSE ATTENDING THE AUCTION: We recommend you view the lots online in advance, because the material for sale is quite extensive.
